Reading about King Curtis' band for that Fillmore '71 run... heavy hitters. Wow
Ambrose Hughes 12:50:04 PM

Not far from Saint Ambrose Parish
Ambrose Hughes 12:57:20 PM
Ambrose Hughes 12:59:41 PM
@ Wesley, I actually thought that was a lot like Shatner but just my ears.
Readie 1:06:24 PM
This is the ice melting in Antarctica, I think
Patrick Blanco 1:07:03 PM
Apparently Ice Melting Music is a big thing especially in Finland.
Readie 1:08:49 PM
Yep, Patrick -I like it, especially the ones where the huge chunks come crashing down into the sea. Like cannons or bombs.
Patrick Blanco 1:10:07 PM
Wouldn’t it be great if Boss Springsteen came out and played an hour of ice melting at the beginning of his show
Wilbo (host) 1:11:00 PM
I'll throw a mic on my freezer next time I defrost it. Ice bits pinging the metal rungs of the shelves,. quite nice
Readie 1:11:00 PM
But, it's the harbinger of the climate apocalypse, so there's that.
maria buda 1:11:33 PM

Readie 1:11:53 PM
@Patrick, well. Bruce has about 3.5 hours, so maybe it would work.

Wilbo (host) 1:17:04 PM
The horizon translator, the whistling element looks like a circular panpipe about 3 feet round and 2 1/2 feet tall
Readie 1:18:59 PM
Wilbo (host) 1:19:26 PM
the percussion is the runoff drum, the creek translator has a dulcimer-like thing in the middle, straddling the stream with 3 wooden flywheels attached
Patrick Blanco 1:20:17 PM
I haven’t heard such a clear explanation since the days of Hank Kimball
Watching You Watching Mok 1:22:00 PM

Readie 1:50:23 PM
St. Leo's motto: "You'll love the person you become here."
